The Power Nap!

The Power Nap
 
Power Napping is a great way to get some relaxation and to reduce mental fatigue. It will restore wakefulness, promote learning and boost memory. It will reduce immune perturbations and reverse the hormonal impact of a poor night’s sleep, and enhance both physical and cognitive performance. There are three key steps for a quality Power Nap:
 
·         Lay on the floor or somewhere other than your bed.
·         Set the alarm- 15-20 minutes is all you need.

·         Have caffeine before you nap- it’ll stop you feeling groggy when you wake and avoid “sleep inertia”. The stimulant effect of caffeine kicks in after 15-20 minutes.
